How to add pornhub channel again

See I used to remember how to get the Dark Roku. Where it would let you add adult explicit channels. I can't remember how to get there.

Sorry, they're gone.  They were all private channels and all private channels regardless of content have been removed.  For whatever reason Roku doesn't allow adult content in the Channel Store.

What's the best market to sell my Roku TV on so I can switch platforms?

Re: How can I get a adult movie channel on my Roku

You can't. Roku devices can only run channels that are officially available in the Roku Channel Store. To be listed there, they must meet certain requirements, and it's unlikely any adult content provider is willing to meet those requirements. There is no way to "side load" an app/channel on a Roku device.

In the past, Roku supported "private" channels, and there were some adult content available through those. However, because of piracy and other non-compliance issues, Roku removed all support for private channels about two years ago. So unsupported channels are simply no longer available on Roku devices.

Re: How to add pornhub channel again

You won't ever get it on a Roku device again. Roku has banned all private channels, regardless of content. It's not because it's porn, although that might be the reason they don't permit it in their channel store. They simply won't permit any channel that doesn't adhere to their terms of service. It's a legal liability for them if someone is streaming content without permission, and after significant costs in other countries they simply banned them all. 

If this is something you really want on your TV screen, then stream it from a phone, tablet or laptop and use the screen share function on your Roku to show it there. That's the only way you'll ever get content like that to play through your Roku.

Re: How to add pornhub channel again

The Work around is simple, watch the porn on your phone and use Dex or screen mirroring to watch on your TV. Problem solved. In fact every single channel can be watched like this without a Roku device, since they want to try to dictate what we can and can't watch. Setup one screen on your phone for all the shortcuts like I did with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Pornhub, Youporn, etc. Because I'm an Amer-I-CAN not an Amer-I-CANT!
